Inheritance diagram for nsIServiceManager:


List of all members.

Detailed Description

The nsIServiceManager manager interface provides a means to obtain global services in an application. The service manager depends on the repository to find and instantiate factories to obtain services.

Users of the service manager must first obtain a pointer to the global service manager by calling NS_GetServiceManager. After that, they can request specific services by calling GetService. When they are finished they can NS_RELEASE() the service as usual.

A user of a service may keep references to particular services indefinitely and only must call Release when it shuts down.
